Summary: As performance and functionality requirements of embedded systems rise, the industry demand for graduates familiar with ARM grows. 32-bit ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers challenge 8/16-bit microcontrollers in cost and power. This hands-on workshop introduces a new Lab-in-a-Box (LiB) from the ARM University Program that includes a set of teaching materials for embedded system design courses and labs. The $15 ST STM32F4Discovery hardware platform is used, based on ARM’s Cortex-M4 processor, ... (continued)
Opportunities to network, collaborate, and engage in mentoring relationships are critical to the graduate student experience. While networking leads to connections with other members of the community, collaborations often times result in tangible outcomes, and mentoring relationships provide a context for support, encouragement, and advice. The skills and connections gained through these interactions are beneficial not only in graduate school, but also throughout one’s career, since activities like networking, collaborating, and mentoring are everyday occurrences in the lives of professionals.

Ioannis Miaoulis and the National Center for Technological Literacy at the Museum of Science, Boston are recipients of the the 2014 ASEE President’s Award. They are exemplars of the award’s focus on making use of print, broadcast, or electronic media to encourage K-12 students to pursue an engineering career, and to both influence public opinion and gain recognition of the critical role that engineering plays in today’s technology-driven society.
This panel discussion will provide examples of engineering education research, implementation, and dissemination projects that have been successful in building communities of practice around projects in STEM education. Communities of practice facilitate collaboration and sharing of knowledge by involving multiple institutions and campuses.Therefore, projects aiming to improve aspects of STEM education achieve greater impact through communities of practice as compared to individuals working alone.
This panel will explore challenges and opportunities of various pathways to developing and
building co ... (continued)

The perception of campus environment influences learning and developmental outcomes, and discriminatory environments have a negative effect on student learning. Research supports the pedagogical value of a diverse student body and faculty on enhancing learning. LGBTQ people have a more negative perception of campus climate than other populations. For example, one-third of LGBTQ students consider leaving due to a negative campus climate, 31% perceive a homophobic climate, and 11% experience harassment. Despite these compelling statistics, only seven percent of universities offer support services sp ... (continued)
